Located in the centre of town, this picturesque retreat features lush green lawns, stunning vistas and an array of entertaining activities. Visitors to the park can enjoy live music performances, or just take in the sights and sounds of nature while they relax in comfort.

Who was Munro-Martin?

Janet Munro and Margaret Martin were known as the ‘Caring Sisters’. A monument has been erected in memorial of the caring that these sisters provided.

Janet and Margaret were also great Cairns philanthropists. Indeed over a period of 30 years these two women contributed to the work of any religious foundations, educational services and medical institutions, along with the RSL and Eventide home. Most of their donations were made without any publicity and some were equivalent to $250,000 in today’s money.

In her will, their niece Margie contributed funds for the redevelopment of the park, to recognise her Aunts generosity.
